Dragons winger Tonderai Chavhanga has urged his team-mates to cut out the errors when they run out against Glasgow at Scotstoun Stadium.
The finisher believes the RaboDirect PRO12's second-bottom side cannot blame their dismal form on a lack of effort but more on mistakes.
Chavhanga and his team-mates have won just two games from their opening seven and the ex-Springbok hopes they can rectify their issues.
"We are all really frustrated and disappointed in ourselves," he told the South Wales Argus.
"I've played rugby for quite a while and we are working as hard, if not harder, than all of the teams that I have played for.
"It's not down to a lack of preparation and every time we play to the game plan that our coaches have given us things work out.
"But it comes down to us as players to take a bit of ownership and responsibility on the field.
"It's the little things that keep on piling up - if every guy makes one mistake then that's 23 and they are really hampering us.
"As professionals we have to cut them out because we have got to do better than this."
